Scrappy Mom's Sneak Peak!!!

Happy Friday Everyone!!!

I must say TGIF!!!  This week I've been crazy busy at work and staying MUCH later than usual and its totally throwing me in a funk!  But the week will be over by the end of the day! HOORAY!! 

Welcome to another Release for Scrappy Mom's Stamps!!  Tammy and Mel have done it yet again with 2 NEW stamp sets that are just absolutely FANTASTIC! You have one for your Sports themed projects--GAME DAY and the very exciting Halloween Set -- BEWITCHED!

Today, I'm using the Game Day for My Project. 

 At work as while back I was able to get some precut cards for an AMAZING price!!! Each pack contains 25 -- 5.5" x  5.5" and I got them for $1.00 Each!! What a steal :) Of course I got one of each color that was available.  These are great because not only are they sturdy, but they can be cut down to any size that you would like! 

I then took my barely used Nate's ABC to make the cut for my card.  And there is the finished product. 

And I got to use my new tool that I just got in the mail today!!! The SewEasy tool by my stitching isn't perfect but i LOVE the way it looks and adds to the card!  I went a little crazy when I ordered the floss ;)

Scrappy Mom's Terrific Tuesday Challenge!!

Happy Tuesday Everyone!!

Hope you have had a great day.....i'm yet again late on posting :(  I do apologize for that! 

As some of you may already know, the TTC for this week is to use Country Life!  I've been needing a little extra inspiration or direction lately, so I turned to a fantastic Magazine that I won as a giveaway last year. 

Sometimes, you just need a little guidance and thats what I love about sketch books/magazines.....below is the sketch I decided to go with. 

And here is the card that I came up with....I have to admit that I do not Love this card....but its something different than I normally create and thus i'm happy with it :)

Hope you guys have a Fantastic Week!!

Hey Everyone!!

Sorry I've been gone for a little while.... The last few weeks have been a little busy with company, but it has certainly been fun!! 

Over the last week, I've been brainstorming and working on a Frame for my desk at work.  I found a wooden frame at Michael's for $1.  I started out by painting it white. 

I then chose 4 different pieces of pattern paper.  For this card, I used DCWV "The Mod-Retro" paper pack and cut 1.5" x 1.5" squares.  Lay them out randomly.  (I used Scotch Quick Dry Glue and it worked GREAT!!!) 

Here is the flame completely covered and trimmed.  

And then I just embellished the frame and added a photo from our Vacation in Grand Cayman!!

Hope you guys enjoyed this easy and Inexpensive project!!  Have a great weekend!!

PPA Challenge

Happy Sunday Everyone! 

Hope you are all are enjoying the last day of the weekend....I know I'm not ready to go back to work yet!!  But I'm excited for the end of this week, as my cousin and his girlfriend are coming down to visit!!! 

I thought that I would try to join in on a couple of challenges this week.  Challenges tend to give me "focus" or "direction" for a card.....makes it a little easier for me ;) 

So I thought Id join in on the PPA Challenge this week (paper pals art).  Its a sketch challenge and it gave me the change to use one of my most recently purchased Stampin' Up! Stamps --Up, Up, and Away! Of source, I paired it up with a Scrappy Mom's Sentiment :) 

I cut out 3 scalloped squares using my Big Shot in white and sponged them in a light blue to give it a sky feel.  I think heat embossed the clouds in White, using the create a cupcake stamp set.  The clouds are really the cup cake to use my stamps in different ways :) 

Hope you guys enjoyed! And have a great week!!!

You Brighten My Day!

Happy Saturday Everyone!!

I don't know about you all but I have been looking forward to the weekend since Monday :) 

Just here today with a super quick and simple card---I love to have some of these on hand because they can be used for many occasions and you can make it super quick. 

I've been organizing my craft space recently and my hubby just gave me more room in our den for my stuff (HooRAy!!!) so i've been rearranging a little.  Hence the lack of posts, even though this card was done on monday.

*$1 Store Ribbon --Love the quality :)

Showing off Happy Campers and color coach

Hey Everyone!!

Hope your enjoying your weekend. I thought I would show all another card that I created for sneak peaks but forgot to post. I used the Happy Campers stamp set with Stampin' UP! Under the Stars stamp set.

I wanted to show you all the Color Coach that Stampin' UP! has, as it's been the greatest crafting companion for me. I always have trouble pairing up colors when it comes to cards and crafts. I generally start with patterned paper and work off of that. But some times I just need to put together a quick card and dont have time for brainstorming. In comes the color coach.

The color coach has all of the stampin up colors listed on one side so that you can see what color you most want to use. For my card, I know I wanted use a blue but it had to be something that went with brown to work well with my bear that I had stamped.

This is the opposite side of the full colored shows your the best combination that works with the primary color selected. So the bashful blue matched exactly what I was looking for. I could use the "sweet pair" which would include a light blue, dark brown, and light green. So if you have trouble picking out color combinations....the color coach may be a handy tool to keep in your crafting corner. It sits in my caddy for easy access at all times.

And here is my completed card. I used the bear from the Under the Stars stamp set. I tried something new in heat embossing black for my colored in image to avoid the image from bleeding.....worked great and I love that the outline stands out so much. The bear was colored using ink and an aqua painter. I then used some brown twin and the decorative label punch for my sentiment. I think the added paper piercing and eyelets really completed the sentiment and card.

Hope you guys enjoy the card and if you have any questions about the Color Coach or would like to order some Stampin' UP! Products, feel free to email me at To order any of the great Scrappy Mom's stamp sets, simply click on the button of my right sidebar.

Home Decor Project

Hey everyone!!!

Hope your all doing well. I thought that I would share a quick home decor project that I recently completed. Our spare bedroom has been looking extremely bare since we moved in and I thought I'd create a quick and inexpensive project.

I purchased a pack of canvases from Michaels this weekend while they were on sale. I took 3 of them and laid them side by side. Wanted painters tape but couldn't find it so I used electrical tape.

Our spare bedroom's bedspread has 4 colors on it and I used some acrylic paint I had in the house. I just painted each spot sparatically.

The finished product! I think it turned out pretty good for only costing $5 and it will be hung above the bed.
